    To build, or not to build, that is the question...
    "Whether 'tis nobler to in the mind to...." Oh, never mind....

    1970 issue Aurora 1964 Ferrari GTO ebay score. I am assuming it is not nearly as valuable as it could be since it has not box and the parts are off of the sprue.

    Thank you so much for all the input, guys. The information has been really helpful. I realize too, that this info will help me with my pearl clear coats as well.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the input guys. I really appreciate it. I will slow down next time and work in thinner coats.

    Candy and Transparent Paints
    Greetings from Colorful Colorado!

    I have been experiencing an issue lately with candies and transparent paints. I have even found evidence of my issue in fine (thin?) solid colors as well(I think the latest was an opaque red from Tamyia shake and shoot).

    Here it is - when I am shooting the candies and transparents, I am experiencing a problem with the pigments receding from panel edges and peaks. I have even experienced this with some pearls.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated, AND if this has already been addressed somewhere else, a road map would be appreciated as well!

    Thanks in advance,

    Russ

    Thanks Carl! The gold on those old Ferraris is a real unassuming color. It took many tries to get it right!

    Nice build Tom! I like the color combination!

    No, I think I may have scraped a little too much paint (black) off of the needle before I used the Sharpie. Kinda looks like it is vibrating at idle, doesn't it?

    Thanks Glenn! They are dry brushed with silver and then a couple of coats of Future to simulate glass (that is hard to see in the photos). The two needles were done with a red Sharpie.

    Hello Bill,
    So are these car wood core then - with the styrene model bodies over the wood core?

    1972 Ferrari Daytonas
    I am currently working on a pair Daytonas inspired by an old episode of Chasing Classic Cars. In the show, both Ferraris were gold, but I decided that one of them had to be Italian Red for my build. I still have a long way to go...

    My uncle was president of The Hudson Club of America for quite some time, so I have been around Hudsons most of my life. I have to say, you nailed the details and colors! Fantastic job!

    Fantastic build Chris! I have been wanting to try the Pearl Ex powder method. How much powder to you add to how much clear?
